It is anticipated that many teachers will want to take their students outside to experience this special event, hence safety is a prime consideration. Students must have permission to view the eclipse outdoors.
I am excited to announce the launch of an "All School Movement" initiative here at Blue Mountain! We created a 20 minute time slot every morning for students to get a sustained 20 minute movement break. Students will continue to do mini movement breaks throughout the day.
Blue Mountain has an instructional focus of Science, Technology and Inquiry. This Instructional Focus is the foundation of the high-quality research based instructional programming that is offered to all students. The natural convergence of the sciences, partnered with literacy, provides students with an outstanding foundation of essential skills while integrating the development of problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills and the ability to collaborate to enhance learning. This Instructional Focus, paired with state-of-the art instructional technology, provides students with outstanding learning opportunities!
